bite-size wisdom: that cross is YOUR cross

Whenever you see a poor, wooden cross,
alone, uncared-for, worthless...and without a corpus,
don't forget that that cross is your cross--the everyday hidden cross, unattractive and unconsoling
--the cross that is waiting for the corpus it lacks:
and that corpus must be you.
-St. Josemaria Escriva, The Way #178
